Grateful Dead Hour by David Gans

Week of July 30, 1990

Another Merl Saunders interview from the GD Hour archive. This program contains the same "Mystery Train" we heard in past week's podcast; at the time of this interview (1990), it had not been released; Merl gave it to me on a cassette as a special treat.

- DG

Garcia-Saunders 10/31/74 Memorial Gym, University of San Francisco

You can browse or search the Grateful Dead Hour program logs on the GD Hour web site. Let me know if there's a particular program you'd like to hear, and feel free to post requests and comments here or by email to gdhour@dead.net

Thanks for listening!

good program

I dont think you ever aired one bad DH in its long history . Keep up the good work . It must not be to easy sometimes selecting the music for the program .. which still pumps out music weekly .

Mistery train was GREAT - here . reminded me of TOOs opener at Nassau in 98 . I was there and was my favourite of the 14 shows i saw that great summer . i remember how great it was to see the first Phil lesh cassidy since the Deads ending - in Philadelphia . And other such awesome moments . And the opening bands , like Hot tuna and their smoking sets , especially Boston ..

A comment on fiddle players , Widespread panic always brings very good players on stage , like David Blackmon //
